About Mur Gamusa:

"Mur Gamusa" is a Assamese song in the Trap/EDM genre produced by desi bass producer, Su Real, introducing vocalist Dekaa. The title translates to “My Gamusa”, where “gamusa” is a common traditional cloth from Assam that has many practical uses and many sociopolitical connotations as well. This song, however, is dedicated not only to the "gamusa"- wearing peoples of Assam but to all youth from regional cultures struggling to co-exist in the great Indian melting pot.

The concept for the song came about in October 2016 after a chance encounter at NH7 Weekender Shillong. Su Real recounts, “I had just finished my set, and it obviously involved a lot waving my gamusa around in the air! I’ve been taking the gamusa with me on stages since I started DJ’ing in Delhi in 2010. I wanted to represent my northeast roots. So after my set, I’m standing backstage thinking - I really need a song about the “gamusa”. That’s when this young fellow walks up and asks me, “hey are you Su Real?” We get to talking and he reveals that he is an Assamese MC. I ask if he can rap about the gamusa in Assamese? He replies yes, and just like that a genuine collaboration is born.”

Su Real continues, “I wanted to make a dark track that represents the brutal honesty of ground realities for youth in the Northeast. I introduced Dekaa to old school influences like U.S. rap groups Public Enemy and N.W.A. who were adept at conveying delicate matters in a poetic light but with an urgency that demands attention. Dekaa knocked the lyrics out of the park and did a tremendous job with the delivery - I think the vibe resonates even if you don’t understand the lyrics.”

LYRICS (ASSAMESE)
O, Huniso neh Axomia?
Jati, mati, bheti'ir kothate holu boliya!
Kaagojote Aasurilu
Nijor aye bhabona
Duniy'ar, hitol juje

Oi Pogola!

Aye jug'or hongramor
nihobdo dhomuha
dhonko korile mur
Jaati'ir monor bhabona
nikh hongo aye
joyal prithibit
aacholito korun
aatmar binonit

Bhinna amar homaj jobon

hoitiya, ahoitiya moha milon

Hokolu aye saise issor'or loi baat
hokolur baabe ayeta aye hosa
golot dekhisu, jaatire...

LYRICS (ENGLISH TRANSLATION)
O people of Assam, are you listening?
The questions of communal identities, land and boundaries is driving me crazy!
I am scratching my thoughts on paper,
For I cannot keep them inside!!
There is a cold war that surrounds me which is making me go psychotic!
In the rat race of this generation, a silent storm
Waiting to burst out and destroy your identity.
In this lonely and dangerous world
I’m the one who hears the crying of the departed soul.

Our society is dappled with a variety of people
The Rich and the Poor co-exist with one another
While Truths and Lies schmooze with each other
Positives and negatives lose their meanings
Cops and criminals exchange their roles
Everyone looks to God to show them the way.
There is one common truth among all.
The Gamusa on their neck.

My Gamusa
Our Gamusa

My Gamusa stands as a symbol of prestige
As it treasures the blood of our freedom fighters
Do not insult the Gamusa by letting it fall on the ground
Keep your dirt off my Gamusa
The Gamusa still resonates with the voices of my land’s martyrs
Bullet riddled, Bloodied
Do not let the dark forces touch the Gamusa
The knots of the Gamusa tied around the people of Assam have the strength of a thousand elephants
And with this unity
We will finish the war of Saraighat
To protect our lands from foreign invaders.
Pre- Chorus:
Our society is dappled with a variety of people
The Rich and the Poor co-exist with one another
While Truths and Lies schmooze with each other
Positives and negatives lose their meanings
Cops and criminals exchange their roles
Everyone looks to God to show them the way.
There is one common truth among all.
The Gamusa on their neck.

My Gamusa
Our Gamusa
